The rotate view / left right keys are on the num-pad, but are the reverse of what I am used to. Can they be remapped in an ini or cfg file somewhere?

There's no in-game remapping at present, but there are some third party programs that let you remap any key for any game. I think Autokey is a popular one.

Markshot's endorsement of autohotkey

Maybe he will do a tutorial for PCO uses.

Holding down the control key when giving orders for waypoints isn't on the Hot Key list.

Good Hunting.
